COLUMBUS—This week, State Senator Andrew Brenner (R-Delaware) this week announced the rollout of the state's capital budget, a $3.5 billion investment in Ohio's infrastructure and local community projects.

The legislature generally approves a capital budget every two years, and the bill funds needed improvements to public services and facilities across the state, including schools, roads and bridges, and mental health and addiction facilities.

“These projects will help improve access to the cultural and recreational facilities in Delaware County and to the rich natural beauty and agricultural heritage of Knox County,” Senator Brenner said. “I am very pleased that local communities will be able to benefit from these improvements.”

Senator Brenner (R-Delaware) secured more than $3 million in funding for multiple projects across Delaware and Knox Counties including:
  • Columbus Zoo - $1,400,000
  • Knox County Fairgrounds Expo Center - $500,000
  • Orange Township Veterans Memorial - $400,000
  • The Barn at Stratford - $500,000
  • Concord Township Park Renovation - $172,000
  • Knox County Regional Airport - $150,000
  • The Strand Theatre in Delaware - $100,000
  • Zuck Riparian Preserve Trail - $18,000
  • Kokosing Gap Trail - $14,000
The House and Senate approved the Capital Budget on Wednesday. It now goes to the Governor's desk for his signature.
